What is prison like?

You mean the guy who asked a teenage boy to "suck my BoomStick" after the boy decided that his grass is nice to step on?

Or was it someone else?

It's just like OZ a gay soap opera.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

I worked in them for over ten years. Maximum, medium, minimum security, even spent a couple years as a drill instructor at a prison boot-camp. It would take a book to try to describe everything about life inside. I will say that you have to leave every social norm you've learned at the door and learn a whole new set of rules inside; rules and attitudes that allow you to survive in prison but that won't get you anywhere after you're released. As far as the danger to one's personal safety, I'd say that the population can be roughly divided into three general catagories: 10% are predators, 10% are prey and 80% are just doing their time without bothering anybody or being bothered. You want to be part of the 80% if you're smart.

"When we are young we generally estimate an opinion by the size of the person that holds it, but later we find that is an uncertain rule, for we realize that there are times when a hornet's opinion disturbs us more than an emperor's" - Mark Twain

"The noblest work of God? Man. Who found it out? Man." - Mark Twain

"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats." - H.L. Menken

According to the press, prison is like a holiday camp and a right old knees up, where prisoners get treated like royalty.

Grim, depressing places.
